I really like it, good choice of colours making for a vibrant painting with lovely brushwork.

The technique here is very similar to my "Study for a Chinese Fan," and I take that as a compliment, although it's entirely possible that no similarity was intended, and I don't even mind that very few people thought to comment on my Fan, even though paintings with visible and heavy impasto underpainting rarely are seen on this forum ... In Stacked Mugs, you can see how the underpainting lends vertical weight to the cups, and also creates visual tension across the horizontal plane of the picture ...
